As Colin Murphy notes, this one's a no-brainer on the way up to the main top of Mullach Glas. The photo shows the view from L948 497, which is where I'd suggest approaching from if coming from Corcóg. As you descend from this viewpoint, you should pick up a fence (barely visible in the photo) which will lead you straight to the foot of Cruiscín. As you can see, poor little Cruiscín is almost completely overshadowed by its bigger brother, Mullach Glas, looming behind! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/681/comment/4436/
